Counter balance, partner drills & partner inversions
Lift off!!

Workshop 2 (Nov 22) - Back-bend-tastic!

Back-bending alone, with partners and ON deeper with support and using gravity whilst flying to safely assist length and extension in your body.

Your teaching team includes two amazing Acro-yogis:

Kim Danoher is a Yoga Junkie from South Africa who was inspired in 2005 by the strength, flexibility and soulfulness of her 65 year old Yoga Teacher. After travelling through Europe and realizing the positive effect that Yoga was having on her physical and mental wellbeing, she returned to South Africa in 2009 to complete her Sivananda Hatha 200hr Teaching certification. Arriving in Dubai in 2011, she discovered AcroYoga – it was love at first flight! She was immediately inspired to fully explore this new dimension of movement and to complete her certification in AcroYoga and Thai Massage. She believes that this knowledge, experience and the happiness that it brings is too good not to share.

Sandy Joy Rubin loves to share the joy and health that comes with movement with her students. She became a Pilates Teacher 4 years ago (completing her 950 hours teacher training through TPC in Boulder). During her Pilates journey, Sandy discovered her love for yoga and its spiritual elements and dived deep into her own yoga self practice and meditation. She continued to attain her RYS 200 Yoga Teacher Training and AcroYoga Teacher Training, She believes that movement can bring us back to health and happiness and her mission is to share this passion with those around her.
